SURAH AL-GHASHIYAH (THE OVERWHELMING)

Division: 288

1Has the news of the Overwhelming come to you?

2,3There will be people who will be humbled and humiliated on that day even though they worked hard and exhausted, 4,5they will lean to a blazing fire, and will be given drink from a boiling spring.

6,7There will be no food for them except a dry thorn that neither gives strength nor satisfies hunger.

8-16And there will be people who will be in blessings, satisfied with their efforts, they will be in an elevate Jannah [Heaven/Paradise], where they will not hear any vain speech. There will be a flowing spring; there will be elevated couches, served cups, lined cushions and spread carpets.

17Then, do those who do not believe in resurrection not look at the camels/rain laden clouds, how were they formed?

18And do they not look at the heavens/universe; how was it raised?

19And do they not look at the mountains; how were they erected?

20And do they not look at the earth; how was it spread?

23,24Open your eyes/However,  whoever turns away and disbelieves; consciously denies the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb, then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment.

26Then, their account is indeed only upon Us.
